Hillary's claws come out

I think I would have gotten a little miffed too, but I'm not the Secretary of State representing the USA. Do you think Hillary showed a little of her famous "bad temper"? Do you think she is truly the best person to be Secretary of State if she can't control her temper better than this?

  • She did not demonstrate the apblom expected of the SoS. Maybe it was a low estrogen moment--did she later apologize for her comments? She definitely should!

  • Why do people expect those in office to act differently when that person reacted the same way you would have in the same situation? It makes no difference if she is Sec of State. What if someone saw you "lose it" out in public with your kids? Any other mother could come up to you and explain to you that you shouldn't show your bad temper out in public and how dare you behave that way in front of your kids. You'd defend your actions as a mom just as she has the right to defend hers in her position. I'm not a HIllary fan by any stretch but this is pushing it.

    All this shows is that she is human. So what she showed that she has emotions. I'd rather see that even Hillary gets ticked off like the rest of us sometimes. You don't see exert this "bad temper" everytime she is in public. But give it time and someone will say this happens all the time with her when it doesn't. It's one instance.

  • Umm, yeah, I didn't see any temper there. She stated a fact. In general, I don't like her, but I think you are being a bit hard on the woman. What she said made sense.

  • Yes it made sense anon its just if I were in her position id of not relayed it that way with that tone myself.

  • OP: What she said did make sense, but when you combine it with the body language then.... She was at a news conference. I think that the setting demanded her to be more "SOS" than Hillary. If this had been at a time of opportunity, she could have given the answer without a problem.

  • This wouldn't be an issue if a man had acted that way. If a man had responded that way then he would have been seen as assertive. However, if a woman puts her foot down and shows that she won't be walked all over then she's a bitch. Typical double standard.
